vVe have endeavored, in this work, to press into the smallest 
compass the greatest amount of information. The Dictionary 
proper will be found reliable in every point. Equal care has 
been bestowed upon the Spelling, the Denning, and the Pro- 
nouncing. This book will be found worthy of comparison with 
the most extensive and expensive Dictionaries in the language. 

In addition to this, it will be seen, by a glance at the con- 
tents, that this volume contains concise, but thorough, article^ 
giving explanations of many other useful branches of human 
knowledge, besides the science of language. 


The consonants used in the Phonetic Spelling retain their name or ordi- 
nary unvarying sounds, with the exception of G. The same sounds are al- 
ways represented by the same letters, no matter hew varied their actual 
spelling in the language. Vowels, unless marked, retain their short sounds 
as in lad, led, lid, lot, but, book. The diphthong au or aw represents the 
sound of a as heard in all; and au or ow as in now, The syllabic soiind oi 
ble, whether terminal or incidental, is represented by bl, and the the termi- 
nation bly by ble. The marked vowels are shown in the following line : 

Fate, Far, Me, Mine, Mote, Mflte, MOOn. 

When more than one pronunciation of a word is given, that which is placed 
irst ia the moat accepted.
